Our self concept is based almost entirely on how others see us. We know no other reality... Ironically, the biggest downers of our lives are often the judgements, assessments, opinions, beliefs of others.
I share herein, a few lines that spontaneously poured forth, inspired by this pic I came across in an FB post.
We think we are kittens
We believe so
n live so
Because they told us so.
They tell only that, that they can see.
A mere segment, a fragment, a streak.
In entirety .. can only thee.
Go on, pause, turn your sights within, n see.
Let's see it, believe it, live it.
Feed it, nurture it, hone it
Quietly, unpretentiosly, persistently.
Keep at it relentlessly.
A day will come when we may unleash it.
Einstien's teacher saw a kitten that failed Math.
Yet emerged a world famed scientist, amidst the tiger's wrath.
Let not what they see, be my reality.
Believe.. I am, n will be, everything, that I can see.
n make your dreams a reality.
Cause happiness is looking beyond the visible,
Happiness is seeing that, that isn't
Happiness is seeing what may be
Happiness is questioning the norm
Happiness is seeking answers,
Happiness is looking within,
Happiness is dreaming
Happiness is believing
Happiness is a looking ahead to
Happiness is being able to see the tiger
Happiness is breathing life into it
Happiness is seeing it come alive.
